The teaser created an instant wave of speculation, based off of the stormy appearance of the image behind the text. An e-mail the park sent out notes that August 18th will be "a historic day" when "all will become clear for 2016," a reference to the dark and cloudy sky in the teaser image. Cedar Point has yet to give any official hints as to what the new ride will be, or if it even is a ride for that matter.
That hasn't stopped many from guessing, and according to this Plain Dealer story, most are thinking a large B&M dive coaster or a highly themed dark ride will be added. Both sound like great ideas, as far as I'm concerned.
One last note on the countdown clock on Cedar Point's homepage - it ends much later than most would expect, at 9 p.m. on the 18th. Looks like an in-the-dark announcement for 2016!
